Shivarathri Puja
February 7th, 2010 by Sowmya


Maha Shivaratri (or “Great Night of Shiva”) is a festival celebrated every year on the 13th day/13th night (breaking fast/’vrata’ on 14th after sunrise) in the Krishna Paksha (waning moon) of the month of Maagha (as per Shalivahana or Gujarati Vikrama) or Phalguna (as per Vikrama) in the Hindu Calendar (that is, the night before and day of the new moon). The festival is principally celebrated by offerings of Bael (Bilva) leaves to the Lord Shiva, all day fasting and an all night long vigil.

Most of the ceremonies take place during the night. On this day, fasting and night vigil (jaagaran) are observed. Some Hindus observe a strict fast on the day by even avoiding water (nirjala vrat). The Shiva Lingam is worshipped throughout the night. Mantras and Hymns to please Lord Shiva are chanted. It includes the shiva panchakshari mantra “Om Namah Shivaya” , “Shiva Mahima Stotra” of Pushpadanta and Ravana’s “Shiva Tandava Stotra” are sung with great devotion.

It is believed that who utters the names of Shiva during Shivratri with utmost devotion is freed from all sins and liberated from the wheel of births and deaths. The Symbol of Lord Shiva, is the Shiva Lingam, it is a form to represent the formless and it is worshiped with great splendour during Maha Shivaratri. During Maha Shivaratri day the Shivalinga is washed with holy water after which the Ekadasha Rudrabishekam is performed. The ingredients used are milk, honey, ghee, curds, coconut water, sugar, flowers and bael leaves.

The Shodashopachara puja of Shiva is available here in English, Sanskrit and Tamil, in downloadable PDF format. The Shiva Sahsranamaavali or 1000 names of Shiva are also available for download here.
